Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed 3 new education bills that would teach America’s youth of Communism, the constitution and patriotism.
Yahoo news wrote, “The three bills, House Bill 5, HB 233, and Senate Bill 1108, contain a provision that will establish a Portraits and Patriotism Library that DeSantis said will ensure students learn about “real patriots” who came to America after fleeing communist and socialist regimes across the world”
“HB 5 requires that the Florida Department of Education create a K-12 civic curriculum that includes an understanding of the rights and responsibilities protected by the United States Constitution, as well as an understanding of the “evils of communism and totalitarian ideologies.” HB 233 prohibits the board from shielding students, staff, and faculty from certain speech, and SB 1108 requires state college and university students to take a civic literacy course and a civic literacy assessment as a requirement for graduation.”
DeSantis expressed his desire for emphasis on the stories of Floridians who fled to America from totalitarian regimes.
“We want all students to understand the difference: Why would somebody flee across shark-infested waters, say, leaving from Cuba to come to southern Florida? Why would somebody leave a place like Vietnam? Why would people leave these countries and risk their life to be able to come here? It’s important students understand that.” The governor said.
He also wants to be sure that Floridian students are responsible citizens. “They need to have a good working knowledge of American history, American government, and the principles that underline our Constitution and Bill of Rights.”
This is knowledge that some Americans so embarrassingly lack. Our own naturally born citizens should at the very least be able to pass the the same tests that we hold immigrants to.
